Paypal Payment Pro Setup

Hi. I'm following the setup to setup Paypal Payments Pro with Powerstore, however everything on paypal has changed (it appears)

Here is what I did:

1.) Logged in
2.) Profile
3.) Request API Credentials
4.) **** PAYPAL does not immediately give me my API Credentials as WA Manual suggests ***
5.) I'm given two options: Option #1: Setup Paypal API Credentials and Permissions; Option #2: Setup Payflow Pro API

6.) I choose Option #2 and have two buttons (Create Access, Delete Access)
7.) I Create Access and I'm provided with : User, Partner, Vendor, Password

However I'm not provided with a signature.

What do I use for the signature in the Globals file?

Please advise...

Terry

You should choose the first option and setup the PayPal API credentials and permission. When you complete this process you should have an API username, password, and signature that you can plug into the globals file.

Eric,

Thank you...I'm getting the username & password but not a signature.

Unless, the signature is also called the certificate?

When I download the certificate I get 2 sections: RSA Private Key & Certificate

Do I just copy the entire certifice (including the private key) to the global file and put in the *signature* field?

It seems that your options are different from mine, is this a US Payments Pro account? If not then this is the problem. If you want to use a gateway other than the US Payments Pro or Authorize.NET then you will need to switch out the gateways using eCart.

Yes, it's a U.S. Paypal Pro account

Eric,

Here's what I'm doing. I login to Paypal -> Select Profile -> Account Information Request API credentials -> I"m given two options

Option 1 - PayPal API
PayPal API credentials identify you to PayPal with a unique API user name and password that allows you to make API calls. You can either grant permission to your shopping cart or solution provider, or request credentials for yourself.

1.) Learn more about the PayPal API
2.) Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions

Option 2 - Payflow Pro
Payflow Pro uses a set of system-generated identifiers to provide API access. You can either grant permission to your shopping cart or solution provider, or request credentials for yourself.

1.) Learn more about the Payflow Pro API
2.) Set up Payflow Pro API access

(See Screenshot)

I pick Option #1 (2.) and I Add/Edit Permissions. I get an API Username and I click on Edit

Next Pages says:

Give Third-Party API Permission

Select the specific API calls your shopping cart or storefront solution provider will be making for you.

I get a list of 50+ api calls that I can check from:

RefundTransaction
GetTransactionDetails
TransactionSearch
BillUser
MassPay
BillAgreementUpdate
Encrypted Website Payments
SetExpressCheckout
GetExpressCheckoutDetails
DoExpressCheckoutPayment

Paypal is asking for Webassist's API account username

Eric,

I trying starting from scratch and creating a new api credential.

The first thing Paypal ask is for an API Accont Username:


Third-party API Instructions
Contact your shopping cart or solution provider for your API account username. Then enter it in the API account username box.

Select the API access categories to which you want to grant permission. The categories include the following APIs:

DirectPayment
DoDirectPayment
ExpressCheckout
SetExpressCheckout
GetExpressCheckoutDetails
DoExpressCheckoutPayment
Reporting and Backoffice APIs
RefundTransaction
GetTransactionDetails
TransactionSearch
Authorization and Settlement APIs
DoCapture
DoAuthorization
DoReauthorization
DoVoid
Other APIs or Permissions
MassPay
Encrypted Website Payments
BillAgreementUpdate
BillUser
Click Save to enable your third-party shopping cart.

Would it be best

Should I submit a support ticket so I can work with someone one-on-one?

I'm at the end of the project and can't deliver until I can get Paypal Pro (U.S.) working with Powerstore.

How do I submit a support ticket?

I will gladly submit a support ticket for you if need be. I think you are very close to getting the correct credentials from PayPal, you just need to proceed with obtaining the API signature and other values. I'm including some screen shots of the screens that I go through to get this setup.

You should not need to worry about granting any third party access as you are setting up the checkout for your own account. You can skip over any of that and just request the credentials directly. Here are the screens that should get you the correct credentials.

Please post back and let me know if you have any problems getting the values.

Paypal Pay Pro Setup

Eric,

I'm not sure how to read this. There are slight differences that I believe are causing the problems.

Notice the screen shot of my profile vs. your profile. I have Request API Credentials and you have API Access.

It's a Paypal issue

Eric,

With extreme frustration I discoverd that this issue is a Paypal issue.

Here's the deal. My client has a website with a shoppingcart that uses their own gateway. In addition, the shopping cart adds a Pay With Paypal button for express checkout with paypal.

In order to do this, you have to request an API Certificate from Paypal. When you do this, Paypal says (according to their tech support) that you can NOT have two API credentials and/or signatures on one paypal account.

If you use the API credentials/certificate you can NOT also have an API Signature also. The ONLY option is to have two paypal accounts.

Wickedly strange.

The only option I have is to disable the Pay with Paypal button and remove the certificate and then create a new api with a signature.


The one thing that might save my bacon is that Paypal allows you to create a sandbox account. I just got a call from Paypal so we'll see if that works. I'll keep this forum posted.

Thanks for your help...sorry for the pain.

Terry
